Checking in with our busy makers

Introducing the Adee Dress
Designed by friend of The Social Outfit and former sewing student Diana, 'Adee' (pronounced "a-day") means 'beautiful' in her Ugandan local language. Diana wanted to create a dress that was "flattering for every body shape - something anyone can wear", and this gorgeous, easy-wear dress nails it.
Made from unique and high-quality African printed wax cloth, Diana explains that "there are only a few bolts of each design on the market, and you might never get that pattern again. You might find something similar, but never the same. That’s the uniqueness of African fabric".
The Adee dress is available now.
